A Message to my Backers
I appreciate everyone’s patience this summer! Initially I was leaning towards making a digital release, and hand-preparing any physical copies of the CD. During the project, I decided that I wanted to have the physical CD version professionally produced as well, which has taken more time and money but I really feel that it will be worth it. I’ve seen a preview of the CD design, and the style is very unique! It captures a lot of the emotion that is in the music.
The CD artwork should be done this coming Monday, and then I will square away all of the final details with the CD manufacturer that I’ve selected. After that, there’s an 8 day wait for the CDs to arrive to my house, and I’ll ship everything to the Backers as soon as I receive that shipment. In the meantime, I’ll be working on getting the beautiful songwriting journals embossed (see a sneak peek in the included picture), and revising the tshirt design.
In addition to the Kickstarter goodies, I’ll be updating my website, working with TuneCore for my distribution needs, collaborating with my PR contact on a press release, and preparing for the CD release event. I'm looking forward to wrapping up this huge step in my musical aspirations!
And in case anyone is wondering, I hope to find some spare time to watch the Olympics! Hopefully you will too. Game on, Summer Olympics 2012!
